Auditions for Little Women



Due to an overwhelming audition request response, the director of our upcoming show, Little Women, has decided to DOUBLE CAST the roles of AMY, JO, BETH and MEG! The double cast will be a YOUTH PRODUCTION. The youth will perform Thursday nights and Saturday Matinee (6 performances). They will be mentored by the adults. The adults will perform Friday  and Saturday nights and Sunday Matinee. The youth cast is open for girls from 8-20. HOWEVER, a youth can still be cast in the adult production for the role of Amy or Beth. Great learning opportunity for aspiring actresses!

For any questions please email the director at pjanbey@gmail.com!

Directed by: PJ Anbey
Produced by: Peggy Schneider

The story of Little Women, Louisa M. Alcott’s famous novel, is so well known and so well loved that it is hardly surprising that many attempts have been made to portray its characters upon the stage. None has yet been so successful, however, as this brilliant dramatization by Peter Clapham. The structure of the play faithfully covers that of the novel, interweaving the lives of the March girls, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy and Laurie, the boy next door, as they grow up happily together, yet the action is contained neatly in one set. All the overtones of gaiety and the undertones of sadness are here, bringing the story completely to life in a way which is both accurate and dramatically satisfying.
